Cousins makes $3,880,800.  That is a relatively cheap contract but actually makes it hard to match up salaries while giving them back something they are actually going to want.  So why don't we shoot the moon and try to get T. Evans too (about $5.2), accepting that we would need to take something else back that they want to get rid of (Outlaw at $3M).  So would you do:

Green + Bradley  (about $10M total)

for

Cousins + Evans + Outlaw (about $11M total)

What more would you be willing to throw in to make it work if we needed to sweeten?

I want no part of Salmons so if they want to dump him (which they probably do) I walk.

Lee, Green, AB, Sully, Melo and picks w/ cash

for

Salmons, Evans, and Cousins

Then consider signing Delonte West on a vet. min. deal.

I highly doubt the Kings ship both Evans and Cousins out. The more likely road is that they shop Evans and try to salvage Cousins. If they want to move them both I try this:

Cousins/Evans/Fredette
for
Bass/Bradley/Sully/Melo and two 1sts.

Also I have no problem with Salmons as a backup SF and would love to take on his contract rather that trade AB. Maybe this:

Green/Sully and two 1sts
for
Cousins/Salmons

  • You ain't the boss of the freakin' bedclothes.
The kings have got to burn the Withering crop here and hope something significant sprouts in next years draft. Get picks/value for Cousins/Evans, fire Petrie, clean house, start anew. The other choice, mediocrity, or watching your grapes wither on the vine, should theoretically both be unacceptable.

The Rockets are still the best option, followed by the other dregs of the league.

But it sounds like they're not buying cousins or Reke. Avery Bradley, Fab Melo, Jeff Green, Sullinger, picks probably isn't the worst offer on the table, but I doubt it's the best.

Original deal is about all I've give for a loser like Cousins. Complete headcase (was before he went to Sac). He'll only "get it" after he bounces around to 2 or 3 more teams a la Zach Randolph. I suppose he's worth a shot on a team going nowhere but let's not act like he's a slam dunk

How about just a simple trade for Cousins?

Boston sends Brandon Bass, Fab Melo, 2013 and 2015 firsts, and our two second round picks on 2014. 

Sacramento gets rid of a headache in Cousins, gets a legit 7ft prospect to pair with Thomas Robinson, gets an established veteran with deep playoff experience with no bad history who can step in and fill Cousin's minutes, and multiple assets to make a bigger move in the future.  They can also get rid of Travis Outlaw or other unwanted contracts to match salaries as well.

TP for getting lost in the daydream. I know the symptoms, Kane. You're smitten.

Cousins new agent I think would rather see a potiental all star client go to a team that could/would most likey start a new page in his life for this young man. It would very easy to land him back in a simular situation.  This course would be most profitable for the agent to have another young sucessful star in his pocket. If he leaves I think he will be led in this direction., maybe not to the highest bidder...making a good citizen of Cousins would be the most profitable deal in the long run.

I do think Boston is one of maybe five teams/organizations truely equipped make a trade and turn his career around at the same time .

TP.

The thought of him with Garnett and Rondo does it for me. Just so much nasty.

Based on this kid's attitude, this is about as much as I'd risk to acquire him.  I'm really reluctant to ship out high-character guys like Sully and AB that have shown signs of being good players for this knucklehead that would be nothing more than a big gamble he gets his head out of his butt to turn into a solid, reliable player.

I'm starting to wonder if this thing really has any legs?  A few days again I thought the chances were zilch to none, but perhaps the odds have improved, ever slightly?   I think this is one of those deals you have to do, provided we keep Rondo...and ideally one of Bradley/Sully (having my cake and eating it too....).

Given that the Kings are in such disarray in the front office I doubt any rumored deal involved with them has legs.

I think there is a chance Cousins gets moved later in the year if the issues continued, but not right now. And if he does get moved I still think the C's offer would be far from the best one.

I don't know how true this is, hence, I am sharing it as a rumor:

https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=503801102975921&id=453191818036850

BREAKING TRADE NEWS: The kings and the celtics are close to a deal that would send Jared Sullinger, Courtney Lee, Brandon Bass, and draft picks for DeMarcus Cousins and other players (Isaiah Thomas is a possibility). Tyreke Evans could be involved. -Bass30

Quote
My source is incarcerated bob on twitter. He is a reliable source. -Bass30

Celtics receive:
DeMarcus Cousins
Tyreke Evans/Isaiah Thomas

Kings receive:
Jared Sullinger
Courtney Lee
Brandon Bass
Draft Picks

Again, this is unconfirmed, hence I am posting this as a rumor.

Can happen if GM of Kings will became mentaly ill

The Kings have been better this season with Cousins off the court.

http://82games.com/1213/1213SAC.HTM

Yet people are still excited at the possibility of getting him? When will people realize he is a cancer and isn't actually all that good?

Best case scenario from Cousins is that he becomes Andrey Blatche. That is, a terrible player on a terrible team transforming into a pretty good backup on a better team by reforming his game mentally.

We have to take on a bad contract with Cousins.
Isiah and Tyreke are going nowhere in these trade scenarios.

Cousins and Salmons
Sully, Melo, Bass and picks
Or
Green, Melo and picks
Can't stop, Rondo!
